I have 2004 Eagle 480DF chart plot & sonar The NautiPath SD chip has stopped working in the unit
I have tried to download the software update from Eagle but it wont seem to take. I take the SD card out & it works fine, Less the
chip info I need. Has anybody had this happen to there Eagle unit?? (Lowrance)

Nobody at Lowrance/Eagle has the same answer. I managed to load the update by using a smaller memory card(1gb) so the unit could read it.Then the unit took update. BUT still had no luck starting unit up with the nauticpath chip in it. SO I ,started it up "with out" the chip in it, then "slammed the chip" in the card holder, & BAM ! it read the chip!. must be a short in the card holder-reader on unit OR something in the chip wont read at start up. No one knows Or will even comment too much about it at Lowrance Eagle cause its to old now. I post this just in case someone else has the same problem(s) I guess its working now!...LOL
